Book Description

Lifestyle change is universally recommended for patients with type 2 diabetes and cardiometabolic disease, yet, the majority of clinical practice, educational programs, and clinical trials within these chronic disease spaces focus on medication use and procedures with insufficient emphasis on lifestyle medicine.  The concept of lifestyle medicine can serve as a countermeasure, acting through aspects of personal choice, natural and built environments, cultural traditions, and socioeconomic influences that affect the metabolic health of an individual.  Lifestyle Medicine for Prediabetes, Type 2 Diabetes, and Cardiometabolic Disease provides clinical evidence and mechanistic understanding for the six pillars of lifestyle medicine.  It guides the reader to identify opportunities for early intervention rather than a focus on the diagnosis and treatment of the established disease.  Interventions at earlier points have the potential to mitigate progression, prevent complications, reduce costs, and improve a patient’s overall health at all points in their lifetime. 


Key Features


  • Provides mechanistic, epidemiological, and clinical understanding for all pillars of lifestyle medicine


  • Presents information on mechanisms for lifestyle medicine in cardiometabolic disease


  • Features a unique model that includes recognition of pre-disease and even pre-pre-disease with rationale for intervention


  • Promotes evidence-based recommendations for all stages of cardiometabolic disease


This volume in the Lifestyle Medicine series is an essential resource for clinicians and students, allowing them information to help them to prevent complications, reduce costs, and improve a patient’s overall health at all points in their lifetime.
